Shwaas - A movie review







A breath of fresh life...
A touching tribute to love...
A must - watch...

What masochists !!!... Avoid the movie !!!

Would you want to watch a movie about an old man... whose grandson has a very rare form of retinal cancer and for whom an operation HAS to be done to save his life and yet the boy would lose eyesight. Would you want to watch a tottering grandfather trying to come to terms with this terrible tragedy and at the same time console his grandson? Why would anyone want to watch such a movie that makes you so depressed that you start thinking that "what the hell/ it is just eyesight that the guy loses... good well atleast he wont be able to watch such maudlin movies".... I knew i cannot watch this movie.. I just watched the first few and the last few minutes and ended up with a lump the size of a cricket ball in my throat. (sorry).

The movie reminds you of Turner and Hooch... and the hate you felt for the director.. for creating such a huge, slobbering, messy, dog, make you fall in love with it... and to kill it at the end? How heartless can the director be?
